This exercise to develop agility skills is generally suitable for players of 4-6 years


  • Place lots of obstacles or domes – mines - inside the playing area
  • Divide the players into 4 teams numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, one at each side of the playing area
  • The coach calls the number of a team and a second number, for example 3 and 2, and team 3 must run across the playing area twice, avoiding the caps
  • The players must dodge the ‘mines’ as they travel from one side of the playing area to the other

Key Points 

  • Ensure the players have enough room to move around safely
  • No pushing or bumping
